The Nanny keeps growing!

The govenment is so out of control, and the people who think big brother is the aswer to everthing need to grow up and take responsibility for their own actions and life styles and that of their children.

Bill Maher: Electorate "Too Stupid" Like A "Dog"

I have only listened to this fool a couple of times and he never says anything. NO facts or figures, only slanderous remarks. His passion makes him sound knowledgeable to those wishing to be lead around by the nose, like George Lopez who agrees with this dribble.

HE must be looking in the mirror when he spouts this nonsense; Maher is talking about himself!

Union uses child's life as a bargaining chip

Union uses child's life as a bargaining chip

Letter to the Editor, EV Tribune

This was published, at least online, except the second to last paragraph.




As we come closer to the primary elections, it is time for serious thought on how we vote. “We the People” are the only protection the US Constitution has and we must diligently exercise our right to vote in protecting our republic.

With our often hectic lifestyles, our family and professional obligations, it is often times hard to keep up with all the issues or for that matter all of the politicians. Depending on which media we watch or read we can get different slants or spins on any issue. Unless we have been following each of our incumbent politicians, as we should be, we may only have their professionally produced marketing commercials, (otherwise known as political ads), the different spin of the media and talk show host who support or oppose these incumbents to base our vote on. The same is true for challengers. But with the incumbent we can always look at their record.

http://www.opencongress.org is an excellent source of information about bills members of Congress have introduced, cosponsored and how they voted. You can find bills you agree with and bills as you don’t agree with. By reading the bills your senators and representatives support, you can ascertain their view on our individual freedoms and our inalienable, constitutionally protected rights. Even if the bill hasn’t gone anywhere been voted on, passed or failed, it gives you insight into the incumbent’s way of thinking.

Here are three examples I have found that give me pause for reflection: senate bill S3081 (violates the 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th amendments), S3002 (takes away freedom of choice and puts big brother in charge of your health) and house bill HR2380 (a carbon tax). There are many more examples for each member of Congress, investigate and decide.

Be involved, make informed decisions! (don’t let a “R” or “D” make your choice)

Mexico asks court to reject Ariz. immigration law

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2010/06/22/20100622mexico-asks-arizona-court-to-reject-arizona-immigration-law.html

Mexico's president is once again out of line, these are US laws and the need for enforcement is imperative. Any US judge should reject any foreign suites. The Mexicans would throw a fit if we told them how to run their country!

And remember, they enforce their laws about unlawful entry and employment into their country and their punishments are much greater than ours.

So I say, "MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS"

A Tea Party to Nowhere

I have felt for years the need to get our military home. We are not the worlds policemen. We have plenty of threats within our borders that need to be addressed. Politicians never learn, Afghanistan is today's Vietnam.

Swedish Hospitality

I was in Copenhagen a couple of years ago and heard a little abouth this. I also visited Malmo Sweden, a very historic and beautiful city. Travel between the two cities was easy as there is no customs, just open borders.

Simple is the Solution... now what's the question?


Capitalism is not the problem. The problem is
corruption and lack of law enforcement. DC and Wall Street are so intertwined it's like they are two divisions of one entity, each helping the other to do their job in a manner that is mutually beneficial. Who was helped by the bailouts? Wall Street executives. Who conducted the bailouts? Ex Wall Street executives. Who was complicit? Blatantly, two congresses and two administrations, but there has been less blatant collusion for a century. Due to their corruption, Government is the problem.

Capitalism is the methods used to capitalize on situations available in the environment that has been created in which to operate. However, though the environment is technically the same for all, some are allowed to operate outside that environment and operate in a manner that would be illegal for you and me. It is illegal for them too, but they know they won't be brought to justice, and if they are, the justice will cost less than their profit. Government is the problem.

Capitalism is not the problem. Government's original role was to protect individuals' rights. To intervene when other individuals or entities violate those rights through fraud, theft, physical harm, or whatever. Transactions can be freely undertaken by and between individuals and other entities. Each party can know the details of the transaction and decide to enter into it or not. When one party does not uphold its end of the bargain, the government must intervene, otherwise the government has no business in the transaction. Instead, the government tries to legislate transactions and alter the environment under which these transactions can take place. Government is the problem.

Take, for instance, health insurance. The government and the insurance industry, along with the AMA and the pharmaceuticals industry, set up a system that would dictate how people would get medical treatment. The AMA said, "No chiropractic, no Eastern medicine, no homeopathy". The pharmaceuticals said, "Vitamins are bad, drugs are dangerous and need to be prescribed". The insurance industry said, "We need to create an environment that causes all insurance purchases to go through employment so we can sell big policies to large groups instead of small policies to little people. It must be tied to employment since that is where most of the healthy people are". The government said, "Ok. We'll regulate drugs to increase the cost, we'll disallow treatments not approved of by the AMA in order to create a monopoly, and we'll give tax breaks to people who buy their insurance through work". Government is the problem.

A different kind of example, the Department of Education. "We think all children should be vaccinated; if you don't get all your students vaccinated, we can't line the pockets of the pharmaceuticals and we won't send you any of that money your state sent us in taxes, so DO IT!". "We want all kids to be in school, regardless of their ability, their desire, or their demeanor. Therefore, we will pay you for each child you can get to say 'present' each day. The more you get, the more we pay. If you expel Big Bad Billy Bob, we will pay you less. Go ahead and let him disrupt class and terrorize other students, just MAKE SURE HE GETS TO CLASS!". "We decided that we want no child left behind. The way we will accomplish that is to ensure that you allow no child to forge ahead, thus leaving others behind. We will implement this plan with certain tests. Your job is to teach the kids how to pass these tests; if they learn something along the way, great. If you don't do what we tell you, we will close your school, so DO IT!". Question. Once we achieve 'No Child Left Behind', and everyone gets a college degree, who will pluck chickens? Government is the problem.

The more laws our government passes, the more corruption we can (and do) have. These laws that are written to guard against these capitalists are aimed toward the little capitalists to keep them from competing with the big capitalists. The big capitalists are nice people; they volunteer their time to help government by actually drafting these laws against themselves! They even help congress to create the loopholes they need in order to operate unencumbered. How nice is that! The more laws our government passes, the less freedom we have to make our own choices. They help us by telling us we can't buy Penicillin without their permission. The help us by giving us a tax break on insurance, as long as we buy what they allow, from whom they allow, with the terms they deem appropriate. Politicians allow this to happen. Government is the problem.

If government had little power to control people or economics, she would not have any currency to bargain with when the lobbyists come knockin'. Corruption must have a currency or it can not be transacted. If we lessen government's power, we lessen corruption by the same degree.

Using one of the examples above, what if the federal (and state) government did not collect or distribute tax money for, or make rules for schools? The county would have to collect money for school funding and it would directly affect those who are paying for it. It would be much more efficient, right now we send $100 to DC and get $60 back. If this were all done at the county level, it would be $99. Then, if Johnny is a bad kid, we could kick him out of school and send him to chicken-plucker school, or carpentry school, or whatever would work best for him. Simple is the solution.

Deficits are illeagal, immoral, and unethical

I read this question (the actual question is the last sentence):

"History is unfolding right in front of our eyes, in excruciating slow motion. Economic and financial records are being broken every day, it seems. Consumer prices plummeting. An unprecedented housing market collapse. Huge companies going out of business overnight. Dizzying price movements in the stock markets. The old saying "Who'da thunk it"


In case the previous question was not hypothetical:
Two answers are Ron Paul - as far back as 2002, and Peter Schiff - as far back as 2006 (find the videos on YouTube). Paul was laughed off the Presidential debate stages and Peter Schiff was laughed off the Financial shows (before the tanking economy).
I appreciate this person's discussion of the causes of economic calamity and the result of money printing (not shown), but this is not an 'iced tea on the porch' conversation; in the words of Joe, "This is a big f*$^@ing deal"! Think of it like this. For all intents and purposes, this started in earnest with Reagan, enabled by Nixon:
* Nixon removed the last vestiges of the gold standard from our currency ("We are all Keynesians now"). He installed the air pump on the giant jumping balloon for the kids to play in, but he did not turn it on.
* Reagan turned on the air pump by borrowing gobs of money (by '80s standards)
* Bush Sr. cranked up the voltage
* Clinton left it alone (He had a negative deficit, but not from spending cuts. That was the dot.com boom)
* Bush Jr. cranked up the air some more. That helped for years, but then we started running out of source air, so he added another pump then said Bye Bye
* Obama said Hi Hi and added another pump, two capacitors and a turbo-charger. The atmospheric pressure on the outside of the tent/balloon went to 0.1; which is not a vaccuum. So if matter exists in the source, it can be extracted but it takes a lot of pumping to extract that last bit of air out of the fed.

So now the balloon is aired up, even if precariously so, and the economy is functional for most. But what happens when the tent starts to deflate again and there aren't enough pumps to keep it pumped up? That's when the inflation will really kick in because their solution is to print money (pump air). A teaspoon of sugar in a cup of coffee makes the coffee taste sweet. A teaspoon of sugar in Lake Superior makes an empty teaspoon. Dilution will happen for dollars, and when that happens, the tent is coming down on the heads of the cute little children and they won't be nuthin nobody cin do bout it. (What to do about it on request...)

Will it happen this year? Not before December at least. Turns out, President Obama has an extra pump hidden in his trunk! Come September, he's going to pull it out and hook it to the tent, then it's pedal-to-the-metal! The extra pump I speak of is the rest of the $787B stimulus. Elections hinge a lot on the economy, so I expect the economy to get one last boost in September. Then our source air will be completely extracted and the dollar will fail next year.

Deficits are illeagal, immoral, and unethical, and those who don't understand that are deficient in basic arithmetic. Or corrupt. Someday I may break down a transaction to its simplest terms and explain it; but not today.

Government and Gasoline

Government and Gasoline


The central government has reduced to almost nothing America's freedom to put her great minds to to the task of finding innovative new ways to use technology. Get out of the way and let the energy companies use their profits to find renewable energy sources; they know Americans expect this of them. But let them also develop the resource we have available in this country to meet our energy needs for the next century and beyond. Take a visit to the US Geological site and see for yourself that we have these resources.

Ask yourself, what is the real reason congress and the president (I believe he has ulterior motives for his latest grandstanding about domestic exploration, we'll see) FORCE the USA to be dependent on foreign oil. They speak with a forked tongue when they SAY they want to move towards "energy independence" but their actions show otherwise.

Subsidies don't work, they delay true development by picking winners and loser that the government, elected or bureaucrat who have no expertise, chose. Look at ethanol. The feds forced more production causing the price of corn to rise, reducing food for people and feed for animals. It takes more ethanol to propel you car the same distance compared to gasoline. And it cost more.

Banished! City forbids Bible studies in homes

Make sure that you understand, this is not an endorsement or condemnation of religion by me. This is about government overstepping it's bounds and destroying the principles of freedom and destroying the US Constitution. NO government has the right to supersede the natural rights of the PEOPLE to assemble for peaceful purposes, especially in their homes. I will concede that if the number of participants is too large for the home, then a suitable venue should be sought for the assembly.

As you may or may not know, if you wish to exercise your right to assemble, in say a Tea Party rally, you must GET PERMISSION FROM THE GOVERNMENT having authority over the area you wish to use. Sounds like another abuse of the First Amendment to me.

stuck accelerators

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2010/03/10/20100310runaway-toyota-prius-10.html



enough America

I am tired of hearing about this horrible problem with Toyota cars. Stuck accelerators! Give me a break. PUT THE TRANSMISSION IN NEUTRAL! Problem solved.

The incident in California, where the 61 year old driver put the life of a highway patrolman in danger because the driver "thought his car would flip if he put it in neutral", is indicative of the lack of knowledge and ability to think for themselves of allot of people in this country. HE called 911, like someone at the other end of the phone could help him! (The 24 year old operator did tell him to put the car in neutral.) Stop expecting big brother to take care of you.

THINK AND ACT FOR YOURSELF! BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF!

How about the car dealer who had an accelerator stick on his vehicle several years ago who threw his young son out of the vehicle then jumped out himself! GIVE ME A BREAK!

I just learned of an incident where an acquaintance of mine stopped to help a stranded woman on an interstate highway. She told him her accelerator stuck (don't know what brand of automobile), she put the transmission in neutral and pulled to the side of the road. WOW!

Maybe this 61 year old is making up this incident for the attention, or have an excuse to sue Toyota.

Dad accused in 'honor killing' will not face death penalty

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Being Muslim is an excuse for a reduced sentence? He admitted to killing his daughter. He is charged with Premeditated murder. If found guilty, he should face the same punishment as anyone else.

Stop pandering to Muslims or any other special interest groups. Stop making excuses for, and victims of, those who commit crimes. Enforce the law. Remember Lady Justice is supposed to be blind. What kind of precedence does this defense set? It is absolutely absurd!!!!!!

ENOUGH AMERICA !

Some of My Thoughts on GOOOH

I have some serious reservation about GOOOH.com

1 They paint with to broad of a brush. To say we need to replace all 435 members of the house is a cop out and lazy. There are Representatives who are worthy of retention. Not many, but they are there. It is easy and popular to say get them all out, but that is the lazy part; if we say this, we don't need to do any research or put any thought into who needs to go and who needs to stay!

2 take the questions then you have to pay $100

3 The questions are not necessarily principle based, but read like the agenda the writer wants to push. I agree with some things, like the fair (consumption) tax versus the progressive tax. I read other questions as a continuation of big government while seeming like goooh is for reducing government:

Will you vote for or against allowing government assistance (of any kind) to a company that has A- or lower bond rating (S&P)?
Why would we consider allowing ANY government assistance? No one is to big to fail.

Will you vote for or against requiring those who have entered our country illegally to, when caught, work on a government project without pay for one year before being deported? One example of a project could be a wall that separates the United States and Mexico, though all other projects could be considered.
WHAT? Isn't this slavery? The cost of this, the lose of a job?

Will you vote for or against amending the Constitution with a “law of predominant majority”, which says the “rights” of groups can be denied if they have consistently demonstrated behavior that 95% of the population considers unacceptable? For example, 95% of the population would likely vote that a public KKK rally should NOT be allowed, overriding the “right” of free speech for that particular group.
Any problem here? More abuses of the 1st amendment if this one goes through! (some poitician will decide when to apply this, again picking winners and losers based on politics!)

Will you vote for or against amending the Constitution to exclude people with a law degree from serving in the House of Representatives?
Really? Some people may not like ambulance chasers, but where do the limits stop? Pretty soon we can only have three eyed Martians with freckles elected to congress!


Will you vote for or against limiting the total amount of money that any person can inherit in their lifetime, including through trusts and other “loopholes”, to 250 times the median income ($11.5 million)?
Isn't this redistribution of wealth? Who gets the dollars above this arbitrary limit. If you earn it, YOU, not the government, decide what happens to it.

I could go on and on. Think about the questions and the relationship to the Constitution. For example, we don't need to reduce spending at the Department of Education, we need to eliminate the Department of Education and return these duties and responsibilities to the STATES!
